Southeast of Albertville and Bourg Saint Maurice, the Les Arcs Bike Park has lift-accessed mountain bike trails spanning from Les Arcs 1800 across to Peisey-Vallandry. The Les Arcs Bike Park is most popular for the 30km enduro-circuit known as Route 66.
To reach the mountain biking at Les Arcs by air, try to fly into Chambery or Lyon. Then, take the train to Bourg Saint Maurice, which is only 1km from Les Arcs. In Bourg Saint Maurice, there are local buses up to Les Arcs, and also there is a quick funicular railway.
TIP: If you are planning to arrive by train, keep in mind that the regular bus up to the resort is primarily during daylight hours. After dark, the bus runs infrequently, if at all. Therefore, you will need to take a cab from the train station to the resort. If you plan to fly into Lyon, you may want to check the train schedule before buying your flight to make sure there is a convenient transfer. If you plan to arrive Friday through Sunday, the shuttle Altibus might be a more convenient option.
Overall, Les Arcs Bike Park is the 103rd most popular mountain bike trail of all 107 mountain biking rides in France.
